STAR Fine Foods traces its roots back to 1898 in San Francisco when the Giurlani family started importing and distributing olive oil under the STAR brand. “STAR” was chosen as the brand name to show their American patriotism. Over the years products have been added to the portfolio: balsamic and wine vinegars, olives, peppers, and capers. STAR is now the #1 selling brand of olive oil, wine vinegar and Spanish green olives in retail grocery stores in the Western United States and growing in distribution in the rest of the US. STAR Fine Foods was acquired by Borges in 1995.
